Shrimp Etouffee with Coca Cola and ESSENCE Festival 2015®

Shrimp Etouffee with Coca Cola and ESSENCE Festival 2015®

I am excited to be partnering this year with Coca Cola to talk about all things ESSENCE®!

ESSENCE Festival 2015® is fast approaching and I thought I would celebrate the wonderful occasion with Shrimp Etouffee!

Nothing goes better with Shrimp Etouffee than a nice cold Coca Cola!

ESSENCE Festival 2015® is being held in New Orleans, Louisiana which means great food, fun, and festivities!

If you can’t make it to this years event, why not create a taste of New Orleans at home?

My Shrimp Etouffee is perfect meal to give you an authentic New Orleans food experience.
